    Anna, send me a PM by clicking on my avatar and include your image and I'll be happy to modify it for you. Or you could simply include it in your next post and I'll send it back. Your choice.

    Out of curiosity, if you can come up with a solution, please post it here. We seem to have a system glitch and are waiting for it to be solved.
    We apologize for the inconvenience.
    For now, it seems that we can still attach files.

    I had a brief private message chat with Moderator 'bois darc chunk' the other day and he told me people have been having trouble with posting pics, he says it might be something to do with the last forum software upgrade.
    The problem only seems to occur when trying to download a pic (or avatar) from our computers straight into the forum.
    One way round it is to go through a Photobucket account, I do that all the time to post pics in the forum, but I don't know if you can do that with avatars.
    Send me your avatar in an e-mail to okee438f (at) aol (dotcom) and I'll upload it to my Photobucket account and send you the link to see if it works that way.

    Tell your server administrator to set "upload_tmp_dir" in php.ini to the full path of some directory on the filesystem that apache/php has access to, and (assuming linux) to chmod the directory permissions to "1777". He will need to restart apache after this change.

    I am very computer savvy and a programmer and can also not upload a new avatar.

    Upon investigating it is not the size at fault as I assumed originally, what has probably happened is your host has upgraded to php5.4 or above.
    https://techjourney.net/vbulletin-un...age-or-avatar/
    This is probably your solution
    Next, go to Admin Control Panel -> Settings -> vBulletin Options -> Server Settings and Optimization Options, and set Safe Mode Upload Enabled to Yes (if PHP Safe Mode is ON) or No (if PHP Safe Mode is OFF or if you’re running PHP >= version 5.4).

    I posted in the help section and the reply was- the problems on their end and they're working on it.

    All the smart advice being given out on this thread isn't doing much for my self-esteem!

    What do you mean "if"?
